Add a ’cado to your diet – Two Seventy

Sometimes, when you try something once, you absolutely hate it, but when you give it a second chance, you like it so much that you can’t believe it’s the same food. That’s what happened with me and avocados. Avocados are loaded with vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin C and potassium, plus monounsaturated fat (the good kind of fat) which was why I wanted to start eating them. But there was a problem: I hated the taste. Oddly enough, I decided to give it another try and this time I liked it!

100% Pure: Fruit for your face – Two Seventy

Finding beauty products with natural properties rather than an extensive list of ingredients I can barely pronounce is no easy task. So, when EVINE Live – a shopping network – was showcasing an all-natural beauty line called 100% PURE, my mom took the opportunity to buy some items and give them a try. 100% PURE considers its products “health food for your skin,” and based on the ingredients they use, I’d have to agree. Even better, they’re cruelty-free and vegan-friendly. However, I found that

Should You Write Every Day?

One of the things that I contemplate on daily is whether I should write every day, even when I don’t feel like it (and there are plenty of days when I just don’t feel like it). Whenever I read articles or blog posts regarding the subject, they would all say the same thing: “You should be writing EVERY DAY.”  I somewhat agree up to a point. I believe it depends on the writer and their situation.

Think of all those poor trees that could have been spared from my wasteful purchases. I didn’t di
